ColorTherapy: Clinton Brown

Double Header today! We weren't expecting Mark today, but he was desperate to get color on the political map.

Name: Clinton Brown HC 67
Brand: Benjamin Moore

How timely--I have so many different browns to write about for the New Year I’m going to have to dole them out at the rate of one per month. And since it’s Primary season, let’s start with this one and see if I can avoid making the obvious Hillary jokes.

Clinton Brown is softer than some of the dark browns I’ve mentioned in columns past, but it won my vote on this occasion because I like how it looks against the dark wood. It doesn’t look like we’re being to precious in matching it to the cabinets, and it’s not too cave-like either. I may be erring on the side of stylistically severe, but at the same time, this room has a coziness perfect for sleeping. Furthermore, Clinton Brown has just a drop of yellow, which I think in this instance lends an element of Zen.

Perhaps this environment is a bit too monochrome for some political leanings, so what about adding a touch of Obama Blue somewhere? We’ll know after Tuesday.
